WW2 German Prisoner Of War (P.O.W.) art: Bismarck ship made of wood, with multiple movable turrets and flags (not pictured.) This ship was made by a prisoner from the Medicine Hat Prisoner of War Camp number 132, and the ship has the original camp release stamp on the bottom of the ship. Only three of these are known to have been produced by the prisoner. German prisoners would often craft intricate art pieces to trade for cigarettes and other luxury items.
